It's no surprise that the city that claims both Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty is one of the most culturally diverse on the globe. It's to celebrate this aspect of New York that Jaxira, a Washington Heights native and daughter of Dominican immigrants, founded The World Through Food, a business whose tours highlight the most delicious facets of ethnic cultures in the Big Apple. And on top of teaching her clients something new, Jaxira prizes social responsibility, donating a percentage of proceeds generated from her tours to charities that support the very neighborhoods they examine.
